    I can't seem to run eDonkey on my network. I did correct all my proxy settings and network ports: TCP, UDP etc.

    The search works, and I get connected to a server, but when i start a download, the status bar says:

    "UDP Port not open". and below it, edonkey has a status of not connected.

    What's wrong.

    You always have to figure out things for yourself.

    The problem with EDonkey is that it configures itself for every user on a network. If you are using a proxy server, than you are out of luck, especially if it is an HTTPS type.

    You can use programs like desproxy to reroute your DNS as a socks4 or a socks5 type proxy. Even then if the server (proxy server) uses a microsoft compliant security Firewall, than leave Edonkey.

    Same of the above explanation goes for Overnet, Kazaa, Bittorrent and other P2P networks. (IRC is an exception.)

    I explained this because I saw many people asking this question around forums, and so did I.

    Maybe the EDONKEY FORUMS or the OVERNET FORUMS would be more appropriate for this hmm?
